ANOTHER RIFLE

Postby jyeomans » Mon Nov 17, 2008 4:55 am

Hi, I have a 30-06 rem pump,and I am looking for something a little lighter.I am looking at two ruger ranch rifles. one a 6.8mm or a 7.62mm. I hunt northern Me.& New Hampshire, where you can run into big deer.This rifle we only be used for deer. The barrells are 18' long, does anyone have any opinions on these rifles,they are both semi auto, Thanks John

try the equipment section
"Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person." - Fred Bear

I've never seen mini that can hit the broad side of a barn. Mini-14s are very inaccurate rifles.
Hunting isn't a matter of Life or Death
Its MUCH more important than that!

If your looking for something lighter on your sholder. first stay away from magnums Personaly I think they are over Kill east of the Mississippi.  Second a good 270 or 25-06 will be great both are flat shooting and easy on the sholder.  even though I'm a 30 fan i still like some of the smaller chamberings
